    Asian Firms

    Frank B. Tipton
    Frank Tipton’s book is a comparative study of the management structures of Asian firms.

As the author argues, Asian firms are very different from their Western counterparts, and these differences reflect the variations in national history and institutions within which they operate.

  16. Reforming China’s State-owned Enterprises and Banks

    Reforming China’s State-owned Enterprises and Banks

    Becky Chiu, Mervyn K. Lewis
    This book’s starting point is that after two decades of experiments, during which other transition economies have effectively privatised all of their former state enterprises, China is still endeavouring to find a way to reinvent and re-engineer its own state-owned economic establishments. The authors explore these reforms along with the problems of China’s state-owned banks, which have long been troubled by the adverse loans of Chinese enterprises and face foreign competition in 2007 under China’s WTO commitments. Drawing on wide-ranging case studies of enterprise reform, Becky Chiu and Mervyn Lewis combine their extensive experience to give an authoritative account of China’s enterprise and bank reform agenda, involving property rights, improved corporate governance and stimulating enterprise.

  17. China’s Offshore Investments

    China’s Offshore Investments

    Dexin Yang
    Presenting a thorough analysis of China’s outward Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the last quarter of a century – something little explored in the literature – this book explores the rationale behind its emergence and development. China’s outward FDI exhibits unique features in respect of timing, pace and geographical distribution that defy the existing mainstream theories of FDI. China’s Offshore Investments uses the framework of a network model of FDI, which is developed by applying economic norms to ideas of networks in business analysis. This network model has been designed specifically by Dexin Yang for the purpose of theorising the changing pattern of FDI in the era of globalisation in general and interpreting China’s FDI in particular.

  19. Transformational CEOs

    Transformational CEOs

    Kimio Kase, Francisco J. Sáez-Martínez, Hernán Riquelme
    Transformational CEOs questions why some Japanese firms succeeded in the 1990s despite an economy that failed – regardless of the burst of the ‘bubble’ economy, a number of Japanese companies have maintained or extended their international leadership in particular sectors. The authors argue that whilst some of the reasons for successes are plain common sense – operational effectiveness and superior CEO leadership – some are Japan-specific and point to a break with traditional leadership rationale.
